Lions,Tigers and Bears is a 501(d)3 charity founded in 2002 by Bobbi Brink to provide a sanctuary for abused and abandoned exotic animals. Their "no breed, no kill, no sell" policy ensures the 19 species of exotic animals are treated with dignity and also means that they rely on donations to keep providing a quality life for these beautiful beasts that cannot be returned to the wild. Many were bred in captivity and never learned the skills they would need to survive in their native habitats. This facility is not open to the public, and visits are by appointment only, so the spooky campover is a special opportunity to enjoy the howls, growls, and other sights and sounds at Lions, Tigers and Bears the weekend before Halloween.
